Evan Peters Transforms Into Serial Killer Jeffrey Dahmer For New Netflix Series

No stranger to macabre characters, actor Evan Peters is embodying one of history’s most notorious serial killers for a new TV series. The “American Horror Story” star

plays the title role in “Dahmer ― Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story,” due out next week. On Friday, Netflix unveiled the first trailer for the 10-episode series, showing a

chilling exchange between Peters’ Dahmer and neighbor Glenda Cleveland, portrayed by Niecy Nash. “Dahmer ― Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story” is co-created by Ryan Murphy,

who said he aimed to “shine a spotlight on the as-yet untold stories of Dahmer’s victims, the people who tried to stop him, and the systemic failures that enabled him to continue

his murderous spree for over a decade.” Other actors set to appear in the series include Richard Jenkins, Michael Learned and Molly Ringwald. The Wisconsin-born

Dahmer, alternately known as the “Milwaukee Cannibal” and the “Milwaukee Monster,” murdered and dismembered 17 men and boys from 1978 to 1991. He also committed necrophilia and

cannibalism on several of his victims, many of whom were people of color and some underage. View the trailer for “Dahmer ― Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story”

Institution.
